9:09 pm
lied! hes trying to bamboozle people into believing hes something different than he really is! walker made four stops with johnson sunday. johnson has tightened the race, but has never led a marquette law school poll and remains one of the most likely republican senators to lose. so i asked, did he wait too long to step up the attacks? this has been my opportunity but me. johnson says feingold has done that in large part because of his political action committee, which johnson says has run a "shadow campaign" for feingold. feingold, campaigning in milwaukee this weekend, brushed off the criticism. let me just say i respect senator johnson and his office, and im going to continue to talk about the issues and not get involved in that sort of thing feingold also denied that walker's appearance on the campaign trail would make a difference. i think

9:15 pm
if you've ever moved to a city where you didn't know anyone at all - you'll understand how the two people you're about to meet felt. they moved to milwaukee for work... wanted to make fr they did. but they never imagined how they'd find each other and what .... they now share. like most couples - lynne and frank say their relationship involves a lot of give and take nats of them cooking together most nights look like this - a hectic rush home from work. dinner. soccer, piano lessons
9:16 pm
they managed to find a little quiet time on the couch - cat included - to discuss how their first conversation began 12 years ago with the click of a mouse... nats more of a nat pop thank a sound bite of her saying: it seemed worth having coffee with him in a place you may not expect to find 2 people with their phds.... match dot com! lots of laughter he was the first person i connected with on match dot com he loved things outdoors the match was magical. they got married. started planning their future... but just two years after their wedding their focus was on franks health. he started ben problems. no pain, he said...but doctors knew something wasnt right. you dont really feel anything, but i had high blood pressure. a slow decline. that decline caused frank to go into kidney failure. he needed a transplant- but it would take time. if you dont get a living donor, for a deceased donor the waiting list is pretty long. its about 6 years. me: 6 years for the waiting list? that is unless you find it yourself...and in that
9:17 pm
exactly what lynne set out to do - find a donor - and fast! she even attened classes with one thing in mind... im going to be his pr person on this and ill start looking for someone to donate for him. earlier this year....things got worse. frank started dialysis - a time consuming, sometimes painful procedure that filters blood to 3 hours a day, 3 times a day, an hour at a time. i saw how challenging that was...and thinking about 4, 5, 6 or 7 more years and how hard that was for him the thought of that made lynne change her direction i really shouldnt ask anyone else- until i think about myself. so i started getting tested. could they be another kind of match? t he couple says the odds ....were slim. and
9:18 pm
for example, siblings only have a 25 percent chance of being an 'exact match'. still, lynne decided to put herself through the tests. each one, was i jumped through that hoop and i passed that test and i cant be more surprised! im like really?! another surprise - theyre the same blood type! i didnt even think about the possibility my spouse would be my donor. still, question was...could they really take their 'match' to the next answer it all! they call you up and they say 'youre a match!' wait a second a match, like match dot com, it just occurred to me. we kind of made it a joke, cuz to get through this i kinda needed a sense of humor. in july of this year - the couple headed into surgery at froedert hospital for the life saving kidney transplant. lynnes doctor - mike zimmerman invited us in the operating room
9:19 pm
us just how the surgery works.... bite: the first thing we will do is inspect the kidney on the back table bite: suppose to be there, in the right the dissection work at the same time. once were happy with the patient, will put it in the patient. i ask: how do you know exactly where to put that thing? thats a great question! it depends on the kidney, how long the vessels are. what shape the artery or the vein is in. some people with advanced renal failure, may have cardiovascular disease, theres only one p can put it. or they may have no evidence of cardiovascular disease so you have multiple areas to choose from. depending on the patients body, its gonna dictate to you. there may be only one place it can go. and you gotta make it work. and work, it did, for this 'power' couple... the kidney seems really happy- it started working as soon as
9:20 pm
first time again tells me how much better i look. its the gift that keeps on giving...something lynne playfully reminded her husband of just before their wedding anniversary this year. i told him the week before - ive got your present. thats all im giving you for the anniversary .... end on average - every 14 minutes someone is added to the kidney transplant list...13 people die each day while waiting...this according to the national kidney foundation. doctors stress the importance of organ donation - it's a simple process of signing a donor card or a driver's license. the last thing you'd expect to
